ALL AT SEA’

10 outdoor, socially distanced artists’ projects centred around 3 weekends

5TH/6TH SEPTEMBER
26TH/27TH SEPTEMBER
17TH/18TH OCTOBER

PROGRAMME

‘All At Sea’ draws upon the collective, working together mood that this turbulent Covid-19 period has come to evoke. Out of the bewilderment, and confusion, a growing sense of resolve can hopefully emerge, and no more so than within the arts.

We at the Art Walk have felt it important to keep going, to adapt and change, during this uncertain period, enabling artists to continue their residencies & projects working with us. To that end a small and distanced programme has been devised over 3 separate weekends, all outdoors, with newly produced work much of which responds to our recent times, taking place in and around Portobello Beach & Promenade.

The works involving beach installation, live art, conversation & projection are centred on subjects critical to these times: of freedoms of movement; of food value; of personal protection; of a sense of ownership about public space; and to times for change; the pairing of place, and shared neighbourhoods, near and far.

Participating Artists:

Felicity Bristow (Scottish Borders), Christopher Kaczmarek (New York), Annie Lord (Edinburgh), Geri Loup Nolan (Edinburgh), Deirdre Macleod (Edinburgh), Jenny Martin (Edinburgh), Jenny Pope (Edinburgh), Iman Tajik (Glasgow/Iran), Rhona Taylor (Edinburgh), David Williams (Edinburgh), Susie Wilson (Edinburgh), Two Places By the Sea (Portobello & Akureyri, Iceland)
